Madrid, morning of February 26, 2010, after 10-hour bus ride from my land Galicia, I had to take a plane to Mexico. One hour before the flight, I found out I had no passport. I immediately entrusted myself to the policeman at the Barajas airport so he would make me a passport for all my money. Miraculously I made it to the plane, which, thank goodness, was delayed. I made this retablo in gratitude.

Your slave Lupita, The Invisible Black woman, from Raval, Barcelona.

2014, during the celebrations at Huejotzingo, an UFO abducted my husband and my mother-in-law. I hid myself and entrusted myself to the Holy Child of Atocha whom I’m infinitely thankful to for they didn’t see me.

Thank you dear God for being sweet and warm when you could have been bitter and cold.

With this retablo, I want to give my condolences to the people of Spain and to condemn the terrorist attacks on the innocent people on the Atocha train station and in the Madrid trains. A lot of people was killed. From the bottom of my heart, I ask the Holy Child of Atocha to not allow this to happen again. I’m lighting up a candle and bringing these flowers in memory of the lost.

In Barcelona, January 19, 2014, your slave Gino Rubert wanted to thank the Virgin of the Miracles from Jalisco for the lady doctor Francis de Carranza, known in the hospital as Juanita, tattooed her name on my butt for pleasure before letting me go.

We have been friends, Saint Dymphna, but from now on I want to be different. I want to be a rich man with mustache who walks in park with his labrador thinking about important business deals and seduces young housemaids from East Europe, same as I was before.

Yours again
